    Default Storm at sea

    To those that have made a storm at sea quilt....which pattern is the easiest way to stitch? I have seen paper piecing, and some with directions that seem more complicated than they need to be. It does not seem to be a block that can be strip pieced. I have some beautiful purple fabric waiting for me to choose a pattern. All suggestions are appreciated..))

    On the one I made a few years ago, I used a template for the diamonds in a rectangle. You can also use a template for the square in a square sub-blocks.

    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    There is a Creative Grids ruler for cutting all those pieces. A pattern comes with the ruler. I took the class a few yrs. ago, but it has become one of my UFOs. It does not need to be paper pieced.

    Check out Jodi Barrows Square n a Square system, it leads to perfection in all her patterns, even the pineapple pattern also. She has tutorials also.

    made own paper unit pieces, due to an upscaling issue.
    if you work out your / the big centre square size draw that square then add the lines inside for the design,
    the side units are half width of centre square but same length. so draw a rectangle and add lines inside,
    finally the corner square is half length of rectangle but same width, draw square add lines of design.
    then once all 3 patterns made photo copy, 3 rectangles cut and stick 2 onto the page then photo copy amount needed,
    again cut and stick squares onto a page then photocopy amount.
    did the foundation paper piecing method, sewn on machine
    ( could hand sew on lines if prefer hand sewing)
    used an add a plus ruler, to cut off the remnant over a 1/4 seam
    my picture in gallery.
    have fun.
